Posted Aug 22, 2014
99% Boyhood (2014) " There is something quite extraordinary about Richard Linklater's film as it depicts a fictional representation about growing up, family, relationships and life's choices - using real time as its bookmark and calling card." — Urban Cinefile
Posted Aug 16, 2014
71% The Inbetweeners Movie 2 " It's hard to imagine a more lowbrow brand of humour, with its excess of male genitalia, crude language and excrement jokes, yet there is an endearing element regarding these puerile juveniles as they venture Down Under for a new adventure" — Urban Cinefile
Posted Aug 16, 2014
82% Predestination (2015) " It might bewildering, but chances are, you'll enjoy the trip from the inventive Spierig Bros, whose wild concepts about inevitability, reshaping wrong doings and time travel will prompt agile brain gymnastics" — Urban Cinefile

Posted Aug 9, 2014
65% The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014) " I loved the book with its incongruous elements of food, culture clash and dreams, but the film is nothing but a schmaltzy saccharine shadow constructed with commercial realities in mind" — Urban Cinefile
Posted Aug 9, 2014
34% The Expendables 3 (2014) " Thank goodness for Mel Gibson, who injects life in the third film of the Expendables franchise, which otherwise is a tired, turgid affair" — Urban Cinefile
Posted Aug 9, 2014

Posted Jul 30, 2014
52% Some Velvet Morning (2013) " It's a tantalising walk on the dark side and LaBute is the ultimate manipulator: I was enthralled, repulsed and intrigued, often feeling like a voyeur peering into a labyrinth of intimacies" — Urban Cinefile

Posted Jul 12, 2014
90% Charlie's Country " The haunting face of David Gulpilil is the overwhelming image that remains after watching Rolf de Heer's film about a man conflicted by living on the edge of two worlds. In many ways, it's an extraordinary film..." — Urban Cinefile
Posted Jul 8, 2014
90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) " It's the ape in the man and the man in the ape that's at the heart of this dazzling sequel spectacular, whose sheer scale and extraordinary effects match the voracity of the film's essence" — Urban Cinefile

Posted May 28, 2014
10% Grace Of Monaco " Melodramatic from the outset, Grace of Monaco plays out like a sob-stricken soapie in which the former Hollywood star's acting career, relationships and reality are all treated in the same breathless, unbelievable manner" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 26, 2014
33% A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014) " It could have been funnier and some of the sheep penis jokes could have been circumcised, but there is an appealing cumulative effect to the nonsense" — Urban Cinefile

Posted May 24, 2014
91% Frank (2014) " Expect the unexpected in this extremely strange and off-the-wall tale in which music bonds a group of creative types who see the world through their own misshapen prism of expression. As for Fassbender, it's a masterful performance," — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014
57% Galore " Galore may not tell a new story, but the setting and context is well described, drawing us into that arc of teenage angst, when sex and love are confused and risk-taking flies perilously like an out-of-control kite" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014
84% The Two Faces of January (2014) " This is a tale filled with secrets and shadows with all the elements coming together serendipitously - good storytelling, layered performances and edge of seat tension to keep us guessing" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014
94% Good Vibrations " Set on a backdrop of 70s Belfast replete with bombs and conflict, passion for life is the central theme for this offbeat and up-beat film in which punk and new wave music unites the un-uniteable" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014
42% The Face of Love (2014) " Love may be lovelier the second time around but has never been as complicated when the past and present are juxtaposed at impossible angles. Top flight performances from Annette Bening & Ed Harris counter the preposterous premise" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014
57% Around The Block (2014) " All the cast is excellent with special mention to Matt Nable, whose minimalist performance as Liam's criminal father is outstanding, providing the film's emotional highlight" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014
80% The Fault In Our Stars (2014) " A myriad of colours and textures are examined through a multi-faceted kaleidoscope in this teenage love story in which truths about bottled up stars, puddles of tears and things that don't happen as they should, play out in a heart-wrenching journey. " — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 24, 2014

Posted May 24, 2014
57% Un château en Italie (A Castle in Italy) " There may be some truths in Valeria Bruni Tedeschi's semi auto-biographical film, but it is hard to have much affection for the disparate group of characters who inhabit it. It plays as a farce, when the subject matter is anything but funny" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 19, 2014
91% X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) " With director Bryan Singer comfortably back in the saddle, there's a wondrous sense of scale about this ambitious Marvel adventure as the element of time travel to the 70's offers a springboard for unbridled creativity and imagination. " — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 18, 2014
92% Sunshine on Leith " I feel a bit mean not to embrace Stephen Greenhorn's adaptation of his good hearted stage musical, but the film plods instead of soars, despite its genuine characters and heartfelt performances" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 18, 2014
100% The Babadook (2014) " Creepy from the outset, Jennifer Kent's debut horror thriller has plenty going for it, from the unsettling mood created to a standout performance by Australian actress Essie Davis" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 18, 2014
73% Godzilla (2014) " It takes a while to get going but when it does, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla fulfils expectations with a gigantic roar: spectacular visual effects, an enveloping dark production design and an outstanding score by Alexandre Desplat that screams its terror." — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 14, 2014
81% The Broken Circle Breakdown (2013) " The juxtaposition of bluegrass music in this heavy-hitting drama about love and loss brings with it an unexpected and exquisite timbre. Take a tissue - this is an affecting film that touches the heart" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 11, 2014
54% The Zero Theorem (2014) " Explodes on screen in a blaze of imagination with its thought-provoking concepts, perverse humour and uniquely zany visuals... It may not always make sense, but one thing is for sure - it's one hell of a ride " — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 9, 2014
73% Neighbors (2014) " There's a whole lot of shaking going on - and I'm not referring only to penis and dildo gags - but the insanity of ideas in what is an outrageous, crude party that broadly explores the divide between youth-inspired excess and adulthood" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 3, 2014
73% Healing " Raptors with broken wings and inmates with broken lives are the subject of Craig Monahan's film about rehabilitation and letting go. It's a unique drama in which bird and man face parallel challenges as they struggle with their fate and surroundings" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 3, 2014
88% Chef (2014) " There's a formulaic element to the plot which offers few surprises but the film is mostly a crowd pleaser ...straddles the genre encompassing its food specialist nature with themes of the father son relationship and road trip adventure" — Urban Cinefile
Posted May 3, 2014
83% Belle (2014) " Conviction and principle are the powerful bullets of this gripping drama in which issues of racial discrimination, slavery and class are canvassed" — Urban Cinefile
